According to the Washington Times (via Privacy.org), JetBlue and Sun Country airlines in the United States have used post-9/11 FAA grants to install surveillance cameras in the cabins of all of its aircraft. The purpose, according to the airlines, is to give pilots a view of the aircraft cabin so a decision about emergency landing can be made in the event of a hijack. The author of the Washington Times article was not able to get a comment from the airlines directly, so is it unclear what policies and procedures are in place to deal with the privacy issues raised by the cameras.
